PayPal’s decision this week to cancel the account of the United Kingdom’s Free Speech Union, effectively demonetizing an organization which fights for freedom of speech in the UK, shows how dire the state of free expression is today.

The organization, founded by Toby Young (@toadmeister), was told that they had violated PayPal’s “acceptable use policy,” however in a statement to The Telegraph, a PayPal spokesperson said that the company was walking a line between “protecting the ideals of tolerance, diversity and respect for people of all backgrounds and upholding the values of free expression and open dialogue.”

These capricious decisions from Big Tech should be seen for what they are: a tool to censor and punish anyone whose political views run counter to the ruling liberal orthodoxy. This should not be accepted in a healthy democracy, or anywhere in the world, for that matter.
